| Hello. I hope you're having a nice day.
I'll keep this straight to the point.
Basically, I'm searching for some Beta+- and Double Beta+- sources among those of the following list that are legally and commercially available.
I'm a responsible individual and I'm really concerned about radiation more in general but I do like to try some experiments for the sake of science and knowledge.
I'm interested in acquiring/buying even fractions of a gram of anything that fits the description but I can buy more if that's the only option available.
And to be totally honest with you all, I'll never dispose of the samples improperly or illegally. I'm just searching for a reliable and reputable company but, with the way algorithms work out there, it's next to impossible to find any. I did find some in the north of europe, a big manufacturer of tritium vials, signs and tritium gas but I'm definitely not interested in gaseous sources due to their "pervasive" nature.
Anything in the range of 10000 CPM would be ideal for my tests.
You may think that I'm overly "zealous" with the following but I'm willing to be signaled to the authorities, to send all possible personal data, ID, passport and whatnot, ANYTHING to be able to do these tests.
I know that many "kids"(even grown ups) are getting crazy out of "beta lights" and the dream of "free energy" out of tritium vials, solar panels and strontium aluminate or phosphorous compounds, but, I'm not "that guy".
I have "loads" of experiments that I'd like to try. I'm even buying a microscope with which I'd like to take some slow-mo of turbulent reactions inside a cloud chamber to better understand brownian motion and fluid dynamics, among many other things.
If there's a good and honest soul that's willing to share some info to feed my cravings for knowledge, I'd really appreciate any effort in this direction.
Sincerely, Adriano (Italy).
P.s. : I also keep a collection of minerals but I studied enough to avoid anything that resembled radioactive ores and, believe it or not, I managed to get some 30(ish) different samples and most of them are below my local background. I can use the geiger to find some, but with lockdowns, covid and whatnot, I'm out of luck at the moment.
